2012 final. We crush him on the Tour and
TORONTO - James Hinchcliffe awoke from a 20-minute nap between Sundays two races at Torontos Honda Indy and thought for a moment hed slept through his alarm. He said his nap briefly turned into a nightmare. What he didnt know was that the nightmare was yet to come. Race 2 of the IndyCar Series event was marred by several cautions, rain and contact with another driver, which would leave Hinchcliffe in 18th when the 80-minute race concluded. The Oakville, Ont., native finished Race 1 Sunday morning in eighth place, matching his personal best at Torontos Exhibition Place. "At least we have two races because before that, it was the one race that was a nightmare," said Hinchcliffe. "I think here we were in for a strong result, maybe a top five, who knows, but it wasnt meant to be today." The 27-year-old set his career-best eighth place finish in Race 1 of the 2013 event before finishing and 21st in Race 2. Hinchcliffe finished 22nd in the 2012 event while posting a 14th place finish during his rookie season in 2011. On Sunday, in Race 2, Hinchcliffes problems began on Lap 12. After Juan Pablo Montoya hit the tires in Turn 8. Hinchcliffe was unable to avoid the Colombians No. 2 car, clipping it. "The rain had just started, Juan Pablo was already in the tires there. I slowed down a lot because I saw him," explained Hinchcliffe. "(Sebastien) Bourdais had already started to go wide so I actually turned in a little early to try and give him room to get back on track. "As soon as I hit the concrete, with a little bit of rain, the thing was just backwards before I knew it. Just so annoying and disappointing." Once he was back on track, Hinchcliffe found himself four laps behind the leader. "It was so tough not racing with those guys at the end," he said. "Its just such a bummer because I think we had a really strong car. To see how the carnage played out, if we had kept our nose clean, we wouldve been up there." Hinchcliffe finished third at Exhibition Place in his first season in the Indy Lights developmental series, but it has been downhill since for him on the 11-turn, 2.8-kilometre track. Earlier in the week, Hinchcliffe joked that it couldnt possibly get worse for him at the lone Canadian stop on the IndyCar schedule. "Its one of those things, were sitting up here, talking, saying what do we have to do to catch a break, here or anywhere this season?" said Hinchcliffe. "The guys did a really good job on the car. I was having so much fun out there. Even in the wet, we wouldve been quick in the wet; we wouldve been quick in anything. "The guys gave me a solid car, Im just sorry we couldnt turn it into a result." Hinchcliffe has gotten used to doing a plethora of appearances to promote the event leading up to race day at his home stop. Hinchcliffe wasnt ready to blame the hectic week for his poor performances in Toronto. Still, he said he worked with Ryann Rigsby, Andretti Autosports Director of Communications, to arrange an optimal schedule. "Ryann here helped a lot in making sure that it was no more than a normal race weekend," Hinchcliffe said. "In a lot of ways, from a time commitment point of view, it felt very much like a normal race weekend. "In years past, I think weve tried to cram in a little more than maybe we shouldve and this year we didnt." Hinchcliffe struggled with tire strategy in Race 1, which saw him start and finish in the eighth spot while dropping from 11th in the point standings to 12th. He earned 36 points total from the two races. Entering the weekends event, Hinchcliffe had started 5-of-12 races in second spot, but hasnt found the podium once in 2014. "I was probably more confident this week more than ever coming here just based on the results weve had in Detroit and Houston," he said. "You cant buy a break, it seems like right now, if youre driving a blue 27 car." Khalil Mack Jersey . The day began ominously for the Rangers when star pitcher Yu Darvish was scratched from his scheduled start with stiffness in his neck. Fill-in Scott Baker gave up three hits over six innings and Chris Gimenez hit a tiebreaking two-out RBI single in the sixth off Phil Hughes. DeAndre Washington Jersey . The Bruins forward has been fined $5,000 by the National Hockey League for spearing Red Wings defenceman Danny DeKeyser in the groin. #OOPS#://www.authenticraidersfansclub.com/Black-Friday-Jack-Tatum-Jersey/. "It was awesome," he said. Coming off an ugly three-game sweep at the hands of the Yankees, Toronto found itself in a deep hole early after the Reds put an eight spot up on starter Liam Hendriks (six runs in 1 2/3 innings pitched) and Todd Redmond in the second. Art Shell Jersey . The commissioners office said Friday that Sears tested positive for metabolites of Methandienone. Sears will be 23 in March. He signed with the Braves in June 2013 out of Arizona Christian, an NAIA school, and is on the roster of the rookie-level Gulf Coast League Braves. T. J. Carrie Jersey . And yet as they left TD Garden amid the slush and snow of a winter storm on Thursday evening, there was a sense among the Leafs that they had finally stood toe to toe with their long-time bully, only to fall just short.Mike McEwen and his rink from Winnipeg are on some kind of roll this season. The foursome has already won six events, including the Canada Cup and The National Grand Slam of Curling. They also lead the World Curling Tour money list - by a wide margin with $114,000 - and sit in first place on the Canadian Team Ranking System. Even the 34-year-old skip is a little surprised by the teams hot start. I obviously didnt see that coming, McEwen told TSN.ca this week. I expected us to win and win a lot, but this has been a real lot. This is the eighth straight year that McEwen, vice B.J. Neufeld, second Matt Wozniak and lead Denni Neufeld have been together. They were one of the few teams who stayed together this off-season and that could be a reason as to why they have been so sharp. But McEwen attributes the success to something else. There were a lot of things we did beyond just the four of us sticking together, he explained. There were a lot of things we did in the off-season and during the start of the season to kind of remake our team a bit. After losing the finals at the Manitoba provincial championships last February, Team McEwen was in a state of flux. They were considered, and still are, the best team to never appear in a Brier and they considered splitting up the band to go their separate ways. But after playing out the season and talking things out, the foursome concluded they owed it to themselves to go after it one last time. I dont think we knew if it was going to work or not or if we could get better because we kind of hit a standstill for a couple of years, said McEwen. Its not easy to identify and motivate to find those little things you have to do. We had to go searching for people outside of our team. The team made almost every change they could in the off-season, outside of shaking up the roster. They sought help from psychologist Kyle Paquette and trainer Adrian Honish to alter their view of the game. We kind of tackled our team in a pretty broad scope, McEwen explained. We looked at how we trained, we looked at how we practiced and we looked at our nutritional intake. We challenged ourselves to change how we mentally prepare as well and then when we actually hit the ice in September, we tackled some of our technical tendencies. And the changes worked. They won the first four tournaments they played in and six of eight in total. They also wwon the Continental Cup as part of Team Canada and took home $8,500 at the TSN Skins Game.dddddddddddd But theres something that still eludes this squad - the Brier. McEwen has never won Manitobas provincial title, the Safeway Championship, with fellow Winnipegger Jeff Stoughton being his biggest nemesis. McEwen lost to Stoughton in the 2010, 2011 and 2014 Manitoba final as well as the 2013 semifinal. He also lost to Rob Fowler (Stoughtons vice this season) in the 2012 final. We crush him on the Tour and he crushes us at provincials, said McEwen. Its weird. Hes obviously super comfortable in that environment. He plays probably some of his best curling all year in February. And we havent. The 51-year-old Stoughton is working things out with an entirely new rink this season and could be the most vulnerable hes been in quite some time, but McEwen says anything can happen. Well probably see a pretty good Stoughton, hopefully well see a good McEwen, and I would expect to see a good [Reid] Carruthers too, said McEwen. I think its going to be one of the most exciting provincials. While a Brier appearance and possible national championship is on the bucket list, they no longer need it to validate themselves under the new team mentality. I would say in the past weve needed to win provincials to validate our season. I dont think we need to do that anymore, said McEwen. Dont get me wrong, I want to win provincials bad, but I dont have that event defining the whole season. I feel like we have a really good mindset. Theres some pressure, but its not an overwhelming amount. The Safeway Championship runs from Feb. 4-8 in Brandon, Manitoba. Team McEwen has not only received help from psychologists and trainers, but also from Mikes wife, Dawn, and her teammates on Team Jennifer Jones - the Olympic gold medalists from Sochi last winter. Shes helped me grow as a player, having that interaction with Team Jones and getting to see how they do things, its been nothing but helpful, he explained. Shes been a big part of my personnel growth as a player and I think Ive taken a bit of that to my team. Ms. McEwen still has her husband numbered when it comes to curling credentials though. I really dont have much to fire back to her very often, he joked. Its hard to get a trophy on the mantle in this house. Cashspiel trophies generally dont make it on the mantle.
